JONONE – TILT – MADC – THIERRY FURGER
From the bombing of New York City subway system in the 1970s to its entrance in galleries, museums and auction houses, graffiti has been able over the years to clear a path to places that, at first glance, seemed unreachable.
This gradual recognition of a new art form, often perceived as illegitimate and confined to vandalism, does not occur without confrontation and resistance. In effect, the emergence of new art movements can result in a struggle for the overthrow of the categories of perception and appreciation in force in the art world. By entering the contemporary art field, graffiti artists like JonOne, Tilt, MadC and Thierry Furger introduce new artistic possibilities that engender a double aesthetic transgression.
